the military. and put their lives on the line. >> thank you supervisor cohen. supervisor farrell. >> supervisor farrell: a number of items. first of all regarding the shooting at sandy hook elementary in connecticut. this was an unfathomable event. as a parent it hit so close to home that i am amazed i never imagined it and i have had a pit in my stomach ever since. 20 students, four for teachers and two administrators. i have a first grader. every day 34 americans are murdered with guns during president obama's final four years in office it is estimated that 40,000 americans will be killed with guns, the same amount of people killed in vietnam. says the shooting in arizona which killed six people including a nine-year-old and seriously injured than congresswoman-- as the city we should continue to lead the way to advocate for and pass policies that protect the general well-being of the society. today i am introducing two resolutions, supporting senator dianne feinstein's assault weapon legislation; and a resolution supporting the sandy hook promise, born out of the event that killed tho
. >> supervisor kim: i want to thank supervisor farrell for bringing up connecticut. we recessed before the incident happened. we were moved and saddened by what occurred. for the families i cannot imagine what they are still processing through. today we sent our support. i agree with supervisor farrell that has to be movement made on gun control, even here in the city of san francisco gun violence continues to pervade our communities as many of our colleagues have mentioned. we lose the lives of young people. we can benefit from a lot of that legislative change. on a different note, i submitted a request for a hearing regarding the training and skill development job placement of san francisco residents in the city's growing technology sector. supervisor farrell mention the city as a partner in the effort.one of the commitments it was unheard of by many of the tech companies, the same with tax exclusion that we also did on stock compensation was that tech companies were committed on working with the city of san francisco on hiring residents from many neighborhoods that don't h
next week for the ellis-o'farrell garage and to terminate that lease as again the sfmta thinks it is not needed. that they can handle it themselves and save money. so for those reasons, we say that this is a policy matter for the board. >> mr. rose, just to clarify from what you just said recently, from my understanding there are a number of garages that are under mta's jurisdiction. a number of them had a non-profit sort of intermediary in the past and the reason for that and the reason why the city entered into that sort of structure was because the city wasn't able to bond orboro money to be able to make improvements to the garages in past? >> that is exactly right. >> obvious the bonds were paid off, there were provisions, i think in some of the contracts that indicated once the bonds are completely paid off or paid in a pre-payment situation, that those organizations would dissolve. but there was in at least item no. 2 sort of an amendment to that clause. does that sound right? >> i don't recall, supervisor, the exact language in the agreements as to whether or not t

to unwind their corporate structure and serve in the advisory capacity and that is ellis-o'farrell and 5th and mission. the two other before you today, the board wanted to continue in a lease structure and basically mta's direction to take leadership from the corporation's desire. that is what we did. so we came back to the mta board and advised them of that fact and they endorsed these two leases to continue. understanding the non-profit corporation's board desire to continue. >> was there according to the audit recommendation a cost-benefit analysis that was conducted that informed the commissioners when they made this decision? >> a cost-benefit analysis has been completed, but only from an operational perspective. i think what is missing is the indirect community benefits and the marketion and the relationship side of the house of the nonprofits have with individual businesses. that part of the oversight has not been quantified. and we hope in the coming year, as part of the review of these new leases, that we would look at that and try to quantify that piece. because mta doesn't do
